I’m tired guys, and this blog post needs to get posted tomorrow, so this might get weird. This week, we interrupt our regular programming to bring you a video about our recent Taiwan trip. For anyone interested in finding out more about the places we visited or may even want to see for yourself in the future, I have listed them below.
This was Matt’s first time out of the country (shocker), and our first trip to Taiwan together. I had not been back in six years so it was a well-needed trip to visit family and honestly, to taste all the wonderfulness of my home country again. I say home country, but I never actually lived in Taiwan. Just poking fun at myself a bit, but I really do LOVE the food there. Every time I visit, I get excited to eat a ton of awesome food, especially seafood and for so much cheaper than is possible in the states. By the time I leave I am usually tired of eating 10 times a day and have gained five pounds. Anyway, I am just rambling. Just watch the video to hear about and see pictures/footage of the places we went to. Note that since we mention a lot of local businesses in this video, it is not monetized in order to protect from any legal issues.
Written Chinese is not a strong suit of mine and I had to do a lot of Googling for this, so if you notice any mistakes please let me know! And if you liked the video or this blog post, please “Like” it, share, and subscribe to support us.
